STEPS TO FOLLOW WHEN YOU PAY YOUR REGISTRATION FEE ONLINE,

visa

Once you click this button online payment form will appear on your screen. Apply your registration fee in the form as per the invoice you received. Online payment system (Visa/MasterCard) requires you to add an extra 4% to the applicable registration fee as bank service charges.  This 4% will be automatically added to the applicable registration fee when you are ready to make the online payment.

Sometime you may try to pay via this method and fail. It usually happens due to the security process of the banks and means that you need to activate the card for foreign transactions.

1) Inform your card holding bank that your payment failed.

2) Inform the bank that you wish to perform an international payment through your card and request them to allow/ verify your card for international payments.
